What happens when the private company I invested in goes public or gets acquired?

What happens to your shares if the company goes through an Initial Public Offering (IPO) or a merger and acquisition (M&A).

Digital Assets:

In the event of an Initial Public Offering, or IPO, the company’s investor relations team will work with HGX Custody to transfer the shares to the custody account.

Additional time will be required by HGX Custody to process the ultimate allocation and transfer of shares to the end investor.

Non-Digital Assets:

In the event of an Initial Public Offering, or IPO, the company’s investor relations team will reach out to every individual investor to process the transfer of shares to a custody account.

Should the company be acquired, the investor relations team will also reach out to all parties involved. Depending on the terms, either cash or shares in the acquiring company will be transferred to the investor.
